Hello Sasha,

this message is CC:ed to discuss linmodems org, in
case anyone there can 
use them in the meantime.

With current kernels, the slmodem-2.9.11-20051101
kernel drivers won't 
compile.
The problems are twofold. One is the following problem
in st7554.c:

error: unknown field 'owner' specified in initializer
warning: initialization from incompatible pointer type

And the other is that the the compiled modules cannot
be inserted in the 
kernel:

slamr: falsely claims to have parameter debug
slusb: falsely claims to have parameter debug


Attached you'll find two patches, the first #ifdefing
the owner field with 
certain kernel releases, specifically 2.6.16 and
later, and the second 
patch changing the deprecated MODULE_PARM to the
current module_param 
format.

Applying these patches makes the kernel drivers work:

slamr: SmartLink AMRMO modem.
slamr: probe 8086:24c6 ICH4 card...
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:1f.6[B] -> GSI 17 (level,
low) -> IRQ 17
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:1f.6 to
64
slamr: mc97 codec is SIL27
slamr: slamr0 is ICH4 card.


These two patches will be used for the new
slmodem-kmod package at 
rpm.livna.org but you might also be interested in
adding them to your 
tree.

regards,
 Andreas
